Sitting down to a half-dozen freshly shucked oysters is a great way to unwind from a long workday, and luckily, some Boston restaurants offer special deals for fans of raw seafood. Marliave is a crowd favorite for its $1 oysters and clams, which are available daily from 4 to 6 p.m., and again from 9 to 10 p.m. "The dollar oyster deal is a great value for money and well worth skipping out of the office for at 4," yumyum says.
libertywharf suggests Turner Fisheries in the Westin Copley Place, which offers $1 oysters on Fridays beginning at 5 p.m. and continuing until they run out. libertywharf thought the oysters were "pretty good" on a recent visit, but julieapfel expressed concern that in the past, Turner had served preshucked oysters during their $1 oyster event—"[they] had clearly been exposed to air for some time and were inferior."
For those seeking to chill out after a busy weekend, Myers + Chang offers $1 oysters and $3.50 Narragansett tallboys on Sunday nights from 8 p.m. until they run out. "They cap you at a dozen oysters," MC Slim JB says. "Not that I can usually eat more than that, anyway."
